The popular South Wales seaside resort of Barry Island has a long and distinctive history. In the eighteenth century it was the private domain of smuggler Thomas Knight, then, in 1856, Francis Crawshay, the Merthyr Iron Master, bought the island for the princely sum of £3,200. The Windsor Estate bought it in 1878 and gifted it to Robert Windsor as a 21st birthday present. With the development of Barry Dock in 1884, a causeway was built which anchored the Island to the mainland and improved transport links led to Barry becoming the biggest exporter of coal in the world. It also grew as a holiday destination and visitors flocked here from South Wales towns and cities as well as from Bristol and South West England. The resort's popularity may have waned since the 1970s with the advent of the cheap package holiday, but people still come to Barry Island, to enjoy the attractions of its Pleasure Park and to pay homage to the location for the hit TV sitcom, 'Gavin and Stacey'. All these changes are captured in this unique selection of old and new images, compiled by local author, David Ings. Barry Island Through Time is essential reading for anybody who knows and loves this famous holiday destination.

Collecting and promoting art was at the heart of John Gibbs' life although his friends and colleagues knew little of the extent of his activities, and the wider art world knew even less. He and his wife Sheila challenged our concept of collecting, acquiring works for public and educational institutions as well as for their own family, including the youngest children. This book reveals for the first time how they created one of the first confident collections of contemporary Welsh art, and demonstrated the value of modern art in Christian faith. The collections they created include works by Ceri Richards, Lucian Freud and Paul Nash, all acquired to help us appreciate the power of art.

All you have ever wanted to know about Rugby League and Rugby Union but have never dared to ask until now (as the answers are in the back of the book!) Will you get stung by a Wasp or charge through the 1,200 questions and mow down the opposition like a Rhino? You will have to cast your minds back over the last two centuries to recall facts about the game’s origins, great players, cup competitions, clubs, stadiums, kit colours, nicknames, nationalities, field positions and much more if you want to be promoted to the Super League rather than face relegation.
